We are often talking about the weather, and children need to acquire a suitable vocabulary so they can describe the sky and the temperature, and how that makes them feel – hot , warm, chilly, cold etc.
During the day, the weather can change in dramatic ways, making it a perfect activity to include among their daily activities.
Our weather booklet is designed to do just that – easy to carry around and store, it can be easily taken during a walk, a car ride or when out and about in the park while the child replicates the weather and plays pretend.
Observe the weather every morning/ evening. Prompt the child to agree upon the weather and use the weather booklet to describe the weather. Focus on deciding if it is sunny, windy, raining or snowing.Talk about the clothes and equipment you use on rainy days, such as umbrellas and raincoats. The child can then dress up the two doll figures, Finn and Lilly, with different outfits based on the weather.
The right side of the booklet has a weather wheel with different weather sections such as sunny, partly cloudy, rainy, stormy, snowy, windy. An arrow on the wheel can be moved and placed on different weather sections. The left side of the booklet has weather based outfits and can be used in accordance with the weather wheel.
A total of eight outfits ranging from shorts to swim suits to raincoats , wind cheaters and snow jackets can be used to dress up the doll figures along with accessories like umbrellas, cap and hat.
Every detachable piece can be attached using a velcro hook and loop and has a place/ pocket to be put back into.
The booklet is 21*21 cms in size, has a colorful rainbow cover page , is made of european certified felt and could be your child’s next best favourite toy!
